“The raring is due to an excellent management & staff, Mr. Tom, is a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Clean hotel, spacious rooms & a very good AC/heating system as you control it very quickly, didn't feel the noise of it though! I stayed there around 6 times.What always brings me back is the amazing staff members & the exceptional management. Mr. Tom, front desk staff, always makes my stay. His politeness, patience & knowledge is priceless. He fixes all small problems whether to me or to other guests in few moments & he follows up details. Mr. Keith, the GM, is a very nice gentleman. I asked to see him to thank him for the great service I receive. He saw me in less than 5 mins. trying to put his jacket on, what a considering manner. Mr. Michael, the assistant GM, is always available everywhere. He does plenty of things are not on his job description to make the work runs smoothly with a big smile & fine attitude. Will always stay there & recommend to everybody.

Room Tip: No complaints & nothing bothers me as a heavy sleeper!.

I travel to this property frequently on business and am never dissapointed. Very welcoming front desk staff (especially Summer and Edna) which always greet me with big bright smiles. This small touch reinforces their great customer service and makes me want to return to this property for my business trips. The rooms lobby, rooms, and gym are clean, comfortable, and provide the frequent travelor with everything needed from a medium priced hotel. Thanks again Courtyard Alexandria staff!

Excellent array of services for the business trip; good showers, comfy bed, internet in the room, ironing, breakfast bar, evening sandwiches, local transportation. Just 2 minutes over the interstate to the Marks Center. Great place to stay!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Stayed here for one weekend night. The hotel is right off the highway, across from a shopping center with a 7/11 and about 15 minutes from downtown DC with no traffic. The lobby is similar to other Courtyards: open with lots of seating. The rooms were spacious and clean. My only complaint, and this is really towards the Courtyard brand and not just this hotel, is that the breakfast buffet which cost $11 is essentially the same as the breakfasts that other Marriott brands provide for free.

This hotel is only exceeded by the amazing staff! I was in the DC area for a friend wedding with a group of my friends. The check-in was smooth and professional. The rooms were clean and the bathroom spotless (this is also true of the other rooms that my friends stayed in). We tried the breakfast - compliment of the great staff! - the next morning .. great selection, fresh, and plentiful.

I will definetely stay there again and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Be friendly and you shall be rewarded!

I was at this hotel for a business trip, and I am very pleased with the premises. My husband and I had stayed at this same hotel three years ago when we came to DC for vacation. The lobby has been redone during the interim and it looks great. Very modern. The staff were exceptionally attentive and courteous. When I missed the shuttle, the manager himself drove me to the Metro! Despite my being a slob, the housekeeping staff did a very good job keeping my room clean. Breakfast was good, although I don't eat very much. The only complaint I have is the A/C is quite noisy when the fan is going. Overall, this is a lovely hotel to stay in when traveling to the DC area.

Room Tip: I had a room away from the elevator so it was quiet.

I would've given this hotel a 5 because:

1. Wonderfully designed and renovated lobby and dining area.
2. Nice and attentive front desk staff....except for one young lady. I wish I'd gotten her name but I didn't. Beza however was helpful as was a tall gentleman with a rather interesting accent. He reminds me a bit of Howdy Doody.
3. Decent hot breakfast.

Anyway I had to go with a 4 rating because of the fact that they cut corners on the hotel renovation. The casual eye won't see it but the corners are literally the problem. You can see some of the wallpaper corners that were rushed through in attempting to cover the old wallpaper job. Also saw some rust in the bathroom. Not rampant but still...

Also there was some weird stain on the sitting chair in the room.

Paper thin walls. We had to be moved from our first room. There was a family next door with an upset small child.

Extremely SMALL elevators!

First I want to thank you for serving our country weather it is now or in the past. We get all kinds of guest that come to the hotel, but there is a special place in our heart for all the military that work hard to protect our country.

I am glad to see you stay was enjoyable and the staff was accomadating from Beza to the tall guy with the Howdy Doody accent was as well :). We look forward to seeing you again at our hotel again soon.
